The Difference between Analog and IP Phone Systems

Posted On // Leave a Comment
How many people do you know who prefer text messaging as their primary means of communication? Let’s take it one step further. How many people do you know who still use a landline for the bulk of their phone calls?

IP phone systems have redefined the way we interact with one another, making the cost of communication exponentially cheaper than it was even five years ago. But more than that, web-based communication provides a significantly higher value in terms of overall service, integrating an entire range of communication tools into a device that fits into the palm of your hand and, more importantly, goes wherever you do.

So how do the two stack up?

Steve Jobs vs. Alexander Graham Bell
Around since 1876, analog equipment results in a system that’s essentially locked. It requires both a professional to install and often one to maintain. Adding an extension onto an analog phone system is complex and requires you to already have wiring in place or create a separate run for each extension. Yet all too often, companies continue to operate on this archaic system.

In fact, it’s not uncommon to find medium to large businesses with dozens of analog lines that are no longer in use. And the cost of these unused lines may be running a pretty hefty bill since, in most instances, you pay a monthly fee for the connection itself. Examples include:
·         Office extensions (both occupied and vacant)
·         Cordless phones
·         Conference room speakerphones
·         Fax machines
·         Modems

The primary reasons many companies cite for maintaining an outdated system are upgrade costs and employee retraining. But after factoring in the cost of long-distance and international calling on an analog system, including changes incurred by traditional fax machines, replacement costs would be a wash if not substantially less than the savings when amortized over a set period of time.

This is further highlighted by the extreme functionality of an IP-based platform.

The Truth behind IP Technology

IP phone systems allow you to use technologically-advanced calling features essentially for free, including call forwarding, call waiting, voicemail, caller ID, call transfers and three-way calling. Plus, most have an auto-answer integrated into the system that allows for personalized messaging.

But IP phone systems are far more than just voice. They seamlessly combine the full functionality of web-based communications, incorporating many of the popular Windows applications as well as e-mail, text messing and IM into a single unified interface.

This feature alone makes the upgrade worth it as IP systems provide a wealth of customer data and other critical information your staff needs right at their fingertips. In doing so, it saves them the time of having to consult multiple systems just to handle a single request, instantly delivering a noticeable degree of streamlined efficiency across your entire organization.

The convenience, portability and advanced features of VoIP make it a benefit for any business – from local ‘mom and pops’ to multinational corporations. In addition to the considerable cost savings, it also provides the range of platforms that time-strapped customers are beginning to demand. If you want to remain competitive, it’s definitely worth considering.

Posted On // Leave a Comment

Here are the top 10 Applications for Nokia Symbian 60 v5 based phones like Nokia 5530, Nokia 5800, Nokia X6, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini.
10) Y-Browser – The ultimate File Manger for Symbian based phones developed by Dr. Jukka. Even though the inbuilt File Manager of Symbian phones is quite good, Y-Browser just takes managing files on your phone to the next level.5800_handytaskman_s60_5_en_1 Y-Browser even allows access to System Drives of a Symbian phone which the inbuilt File Manager lacks. Dr. Jukka has even made many plugins, for Y-Browser like the ability to open and edit text files from within Y-Browser and so on. You can download Y-Browser from here.
9) Google Maps – Google Maps from Google is a must have application for your phone. Nowadays, all the latest symbian phones feature an inbuilt GPS chip, Google Maps takes advantage of it and the cellphone towers to pin point your location and to guide you through your city. Even though Nokia phones comes with Ovi Maps pre-installed, Google Maps just blows it away with a better detailed map of your city. The Layers and Street View features of Google Maps act as an icing on the cake. You can download Google Maps by going to m.google.com from your mobile phone web browser.
8) Handy Taskman – The inbuilt task manager of S60 smartphones is quite limited. It does not show the amount of free RAM, process running in the background etc. This is where Handy Taskman comes in. Not only does Handy Taskman shows the amount of free RAM, it even allows you to kill process or applications which might have hung. Handy Taskman also features a ‘Favorites’ tab where you can create a list of your frequently used applications for quick access to them. Here is a link to Handy Taskman official product page.
7) Nokia Messaging – This has to be the ultimate email Messaging client for Nokia phones. Nokia Messaging has Kinetic scrolling, can display mails in HTML, and on top of that, the push email feature works like a charm. The only thing missing in Nokia Messaging is the ability to view your mails in Fullscreen, and the developers have said that they will add this feature in the next build of Nokia Messaging. You can download Nokia Messaging by pointing your phones web browser to email.nokia.com
6) Bright Light – Most of the smartphones come equipped with at least a Single LED Flash to aid photography in the night. Not many people click pictures from their smartphones and so the LED flash is left unused. With Bright Light one can use the LED Flash of the phone as a torch. The application has  a very simple interface like a On/Off “Switch”. The ability to use the LED flash of your phone as a torch is very handy and thus, this application is a must have for your20frpjq phone. Bright Light is available for free download at the Ovi Store.
5) Quickoffice – Quickoffice has been one of the most popular office editing suites for Nokia smartphones for quite a few years now. Quickoffice version 6 was recently launched which added support for S60v5 based devices, support for docx, pptx files. Thanks to Quickoffice, editing documents on your mobile phone is nothing but a treat! You can download Quickoffice by going to www.quickoffice.com
4) Opera Mobile/Mini –The webkit based browser of Nokia S60v5 phones is quite good, but it lacks many features like multiple tab support, crashes randomly etc. This is where Opera Mobile/Mini – one of the most popular Mobile phone web browser comes in. Opera Mobile in its latest version (v10, which is still under beta) has went through a complete makeover. Opera Mobile now features a more touch friendly UI, the ability to open multiple tabs, inbuilt download manager and some nice animations as well. Opera Mini is the same as Opera Mobile, except that Opera Mini is a Java software while Opera Mobile is a native symbian web browsing software. Visit opera.com from your phone’s web browser to download Opera Mobile/Mini for your phone.
3) S60Tickr – One of the most useful applications for Symbian phones I ever came across is S60Tickr. As the name suggests S60Tickr is a Ticker which hovers on the screen when you get a new message or a new email. This application comes in pretty useful whengravity-5800 you are busy reading some article on your phone and you receive a new sms. Just by glancing at the Tickr you can understand whether the message is an important one or not, and act accordingly. S60Tickr is available for a free download here.
2) Best Profiles – Best Profiles allows you to make your phone location aware and time aware. Best Profiles gives you the ability to automatically change profiles at a certain period of time during the day, or when you reach a certain place. Eg. – Best Profiles will automatically change the profile to Silent Mode when you reach your College or School. Not only this, Best Profiles also allows you to launch applications when a certain profile is activated or during certain hours of the day. The possibilities of what a user can do with this application are just limitless. You can download a trial version of Best Profiles from here.
1) Gravity – Twitter is the next big “thing” in social networking. People are soon realizing the potential of Twitter and hopping onto it. Chances are, many of the readers of this article might be on twitter as well. Gravity is a native Symbian twitter client. The interface of Gravity is simply gorgeous. The developer of Gravity, @janole, has also added many other features to Gravity, like Kinetic Scrolling, Drafts Section etc. Gravity also gives you the ability to update your Facebook Status. At 10$, Gravity is one must have application if you are on Twitter. Here is a link to Gravity’s official product page
